(dont forget my salmon--must have a protein in there!--the main part that feels good!) ::devil


Yes, yes,yes! I love it, Susanna. And i really adore the human body. I have been spying a lot of pictures of almost naked women on sites that show all types of body types. I accidentally found it on "before and after" labeled pictures when I was looking for inspiration of even better fitness. And there is so much variety out there, all of it gorgeous and although i really like myself on the slender side, i really ***appreciate*** different shapes. And i happen to be petite  but i love all sizes and shapes and tall is so gorgeous!

And i love that you figured out how to have doughnuts for breakfast! And i made peace that i can only have doughnuts painted by Wayne Thiebaud to inspire me. And though sometimes i think why cant i have doughnuts and not experience a sugar rush and then crash and the intense craving for more doughnuts (i have been known to eat 1/2 box all by myself..lol)...i really feel pretty lucky to have found what feels good to my body.

Oh, i love this quote too, "We are not encouraging you to look at whatever your current state is and proclaim it as "perfect," because you will always be striving for something that is just beyond what-is.  P 144

::woohooLove it so much because it supports my normal state ot striving for beyond where i am... the pure fun  finding and discovering food that makes me feel so balanced. Balanced...ahhh. I cant tell you how much relief and FUN i find in that!

Susanna, I agree!

That is such an important Re-Minder for me. I could use that as a Mantra.

Haha, Re-Align my energy , Re Mind myself of this...Not unconsciencely `hopping`along with what others are vibrating....Unconsciencely I`m afraid...::devil

I love Seth!

And thank you for sharing this quote! Funny that I have been doing this lately, because I felt like it. Great Stuff! Yes We Pay Attention Source! YooHoo!

Thanks again Susan!

This is such an amazing thread! I feel like we are getting real-time feedback from experts who have each found their own way to their ideal bodies! What an inspiration. It is so in line with the pages that we are reading--that we can't rely on what we observe of others, but instead need to tend to our own alignment, and find what works for us. And we have concrete examples of people who are doing that, here on this thread. And we are each finding our own way.

I am doing that, and it feels so good. I love loving my body just as it is, while knowing that it is in the process of becoming more. I am training for a fitness competiton! It will be in November and it is so much fun to prepare for it. Much of the preparation is mental--everytime I exercise, I think: this is for November 12! And that feels good to me.

And with eating--I eat whatever seems delicious from what is available. I really LOVE eating like this! And sometimes I eat for emotional reasons, and that is okay. A book I recently read said something like--"We are human beings! Of course we eat to celebrate, and eat to soothe our feelings and eat when we are not really hungry just because someone made it for us. It's OKAY."

Abe encourages us to make peace with food and make peace with our bodies, and this feels so good to me!


Page 143: "there are a great many varieties of states of physical bodies that have been intended by you as you emerged into this physical body."

like being a child, or average, or pregnant, or plump, or lean, or yogini, or fitness instructor, etc.

This brings me so much relief. The different body types feel like different costumes I get to wear. Each has its advantages. When I was plumper, I thought--well, now I look like more of America! So this is what it's like!::LOL

I've been really lean, and that felt uncomfortable to me. But it was fun to fit into size 0 pants!

:allgood


Page 143: "Rather than looking at yourselves and acknowledging that you are lacking in this or that characteristic, as most of you do, we would like to assist you in looking toward the advantages of that which you are."

thanks for such a wonderful thread, friends!

When I was younger, I thought my body was too skinny.  The bones on my elbows stuck out, my knees were knobby and my hip-bones looked like a knife.  Folks told me I should think about being a model, but I just didn't see 'it' and didn't want 'it'.....and at 5ft6" was too short anyways.  I wanted to look like my sister, she was round and curvy and voluptuous.....BUT she wanted to look like me....what a merry-go-round we ride when we focus on negative body images.  Now I appreciate that skinny earlier version of me....that skinny body enabled me to believe I can eat anything I want .... yep even donuts :)....and I as I matured I got curvier in the body areas that I dreamed of when I wanted my sisters body.....

....making peace with my body, making peace with my money, making peace with my now....that 'feels so good to me' too

Page 142: Without an understanding of the Connection between the physical you and the Non-Physical Vibrational Inner You, there can be no consistent understanding or control.

You know, I've "known" this for a couple of decades, and have seen it at work in others, but got the real proof-positive in my own life some two years ago. I've been a pretty healthy sort for many years, rarely sick, and then a massive-expansion-generating heartbreak in late 2008 was almost immediately paralleled by a persistent, wheezy chest cough that had me spitting into the sink every morning for months, like a smoker; consistent back problems in the mid-spine area (hmmm, heart-region problems again!); and a suddenly abscessed tooth. And because I just wallowed and left it all untreated, having become so accustomed to my BODY healing itself (when I should have been healing my SOUL), the cough dragged on and the abscess led to significant bone loss....thus the bone graft mentioned in last thread, which I was able to avoid in the end with concentrated work on my vibration, both on the body-related level, and on the soul-level, releasing the resentment about the man and moving back into a space of love about that relationship.
Thank you Jesterham! What an eye-opener!

Very intuitive reasoning!!!!   I'm told that issues with our lungs have to do with grieving.   Thru various times in my life, I do notice a correlation.

As we progress in our awareness of our feelings and the knowledge we have now relating to our thoughts, we'll get to the point when we don't have to go to the lengths we once did in our past before we make a shift.

When I started experiencing some recent physical discomfort, I went to VR to feel good and made sure that I wasn’t trying to reach for better thinking thoughts regarding my physical body. That just doesn’t seem to work for me, just like it didn’t work for me regarding money and my business.   I was putting a happy sticker on 'what is'.   Trying to fix 'what is'.

This month, I have been experimenting more with “Virtual Reality”, of going into it for 30 seconds at a time, reading the thread on the Abe forum for the good feelings there, while mostly keeping current with this thread, even if I don’t comment everyday.

I’ve found some almost instantaneous results (meaning under 12 hours) of some physical issues. Nothing that was major, yet certainly was a bit surprised by the quickness of the physical results which would normally have taken twice as long to get over. I.e. I have a knee thing that flairs up from time to time from a ski injury and arthroscopic surgery over 23 years ago.  

This time, instead of focusing on good feeling thoughts on healing my knee, trying to choose better feeling thoughts regarding my knee, my health … I went off in a completely DIFFERENT DIRECTION going into my Virtual Reality.  In other words, I went into my VR to feel good, not FIX my physical issue. 

I started my VR game doing what was pretty much suggested. In and out… in and out in 30 seconds. The other thread on the Abe forum was very helpful in understanding what that more or less ‘looked like’.   I was surprised at the results.  It was quick.   Not only did I feel better and I felt the shifts; little stuff starting showing almost immediately after these little trips that had to do with business and other stuff.  I mean literally within MINUTES.

What that eventually evolved to for me was detailing a story that continues.  Now, when I go in VR, I pick up where I left off in my story ...  I may recap and leave it at that, changing some details that feel better ... whether or not ANY of it comes 'true' isn't the thing ... it IS about feeling better, it IS about the vibrational shift.

So during the day whenever I ACKNOWLEDGE/am AWARE, I feel an icky feeling arising ... whether it's a slight fear regarding money, business, or my physical health, in my mind I push a button and say to myself, coining an advertisement phrase "Calgon ... take me away ..." And waaaa laaaaa ... I am in my VR.   I stay there embellishing the details, until it bcomes a bit of struggle, then "come back" to the supposed here and now.  As soon as I do, I  make it my dominant intent to look for that which pleases me in the moment.   When the supposed current reality gets to be a bit of a struggle "Calgon ... take me awaaaaay......." mmm


Back and forth ... between VR and 'here and now'.  When envisioning the details in my VR becomes a point of efforting or 'fixing'... I get out.   ((   I realized I was doing this when I found myself saying something like ... BF enjoys his meal, he's slowing down his eating to bask and savor instead of wolfing his meal.   ACK!!! That's 'fixing' what I misperceive to be a flaw!   So I kick myself out of VR for a moment .  Cause I realize, that doesn't feel good -- to try and 'fix' !  ))

So I started in my VR, a totally romantic and erotic end to a day with my BF in a open tropical room somewhere in the South Pacific.  That evolved into how I ended up in the wonderful, exotic room with my BF, went to the dinner before hand, to the beautiful outfit that I was wearing which was handpicked by my BF to wear, which before that was the spa experience that he booked. 




That  VR spa experience has got into some REAL detail now that makes me feel wonderful in a matter of nanoseconds!   And who knows, may not only happen for me to experience, may also find me  in front of someone with millions of dollars to spend that's looking how to enhance the experience of their patrons in their resort and wants to hire me as a consultant!  It could happen !

 Oh ... that salt glow treatment where one gets to pick out their own aromatic blend of tropical flowers applied with sea sponges and a marine/algae blend given in the location behind a waterfall on a flooring of crushed seashell tiles that sparkles from the occasional paui / abalone shells.

OMS, the last few days of doing that … some days more than others ! And two instances of slightly annoying physical problems leaving within HOURS -- and I can only say it was because I wasn’t focused on FIXING THEM … I was focused on my VR in order to FEEL GOOD. Though I took a few steps in the physical I thought might be of benefit for the physical issues, I was more focused on my thoughts and feeling good, and my VR does just that !

The last 5 weeks have been very consistent for me business-wise. It was when we stopped focusing in the book on money and went to the physical body that I felt a shift! I went with that … and dang, I simply cannot remember when I’ve had such a consistent period of work!

The stories we tell to feel better, I see for me, is something ELSE than what triggered the less-than feeling wonderful I am experiencing.   If I'm feeling anxious about money -- go to VR and tell a story about how wonderful it feels to be in the physical-- whether it's a great meal, sexual encounter, sports activity or playing of music.   If I'm a bit concerned about my health, then  tell a story about how wonderful my business has been doing, how excited I am about learning hammered dulcimer ... etc.   

I think I'm getting it.   It's easy to not look at what is once you start the practice of VR.    And when you do that, you are vibrationally a match to what you truly want. 

step 1:Ask

step 2: It's Given (it is done done done)

step 3:  Allow   ...  

That's it.   three steps.

1 and 2 automatically happen.

step three ... allow .. means to me RELAX !  Get into alignment.    It's done.   Go focus on something else  and let it in!.

I appreciate ya'll so very much .   So very very much ! I love reading everybody's posts. 

You are inspirational, you are encouraging

 

You ARE MY COMMUNITY !::grapevine::hearts

Hugs,

Alyssa Rose

You are so right on the "fixing things"/VR topic. :exactly:::TU
I am recognizing in myself, when I'm under pressure, the happy-face kind of stuff that I picked up from my mom, a strange sort of self-chastisement ("Just relax! Everything's fine! All is well! Let it go!") - like I'm scolding myself for being tense. Basically slapping myself across the face for being out of alignment, under the guise of speaking "aligned" words to get "aligned" again. And, of course, I feel worse and not better. When I wake up to what I'm doing, I then climb back down the emotional tree I was struggling to get up, define the actual emotion that I'm in and be prepared to go pretty darn low on the scale to find the word for it (fear, disempowerment), and just choose something one or two rungs higher on the EGS and go THERE - and THEN things start to shift. Being willing to say "I hate" SO AS TO BE ABLE TO GET TO the feeling "I love," instead of pretending that I only feel frustration or irritation (because I "shouldn't" feel hatred) and staying stuck there because I'm trying to move from a place that's not where I really am! The VR can't be the "fixer" - I've got to go there just cuz it's nice there. Otherwise it becomes polluted. But I do sometimes try to go there when my vibe is far, far away from that - and, of course, it doesn't "work"!
You are SOOOO spot-on with that...... and the physical sensations that go with all that are "indicators" that "don't worry, will get bigger" if not addressed.

I can't tell you the number of times I have gotten fired because of my natural state of striving... I love the affirmation of this and ::TUEvey for your post.

This reminds me that when I travel and I go to different people's houses and they make things for me that "traditionally" I would not eat but I eat it with them and it is delicious even rudabaga when eating it in a small town in Sweeden could be delicious. I see now I was just so happy everything was delicious.

Sandra I know all about knobby knees and elbows and sisters with curves. I bless each day that I have the body I had cause now it is fabulous!!

Nancy! Your post brought be much relief and adoreation fo you!

Leslie, I love the reasons you eat, they are all so vortexy! I love eating out every reason except for numbing out my EGS! In other words, when frazzled or overwhelmed, instead of unpinching and connecting to source, i used to eat! I would say, prior to raising my consciouness, i ate for OOV reasons MORE than half the time, maybe 80% the time! Wow! It feels good to acknowledge that and see my personal increased sensitivity to wanting to stay TITITO and not shut down.

The primary reason I used to eat (adult life) was to shut down my EGS! Now my primary reason to eat is to thrive and for JOY! By Joy, i mean i put a premium value in feeling really connected to my body and enjoying it and *for me* food choices seem to be meaningful.

 I dont see my  body as the whole of ME, see my body as a portion of me in this storyline/movie/script that is my current physical life here as extension of source. And I know i will get another one, but what a great body i choose for this Movie ::grapevine.

This is such good stuff to think about. This discussion has also helped me care what i care about and  care not one iota what is on anyone else's plate. I really just care about me and what I do regarding being physical! Ahhh sweet relief in that.

It is funny to have other family members comment on what i eat. By other, i mean MIL. She wants me to eat what she eats at the same time she eats it! WHaa! Lol. It reminds of that thing girls do about going to the loo at the same time. Why cant you go when you need to go and keep me out of it? LOL. You dont see men, agree to go to the loo as a bonding experience. ::devil I dont see men talking this much about food either! ::devil

I love the idea of not having consensus for what i am eating (my egs can guide me on that!) and i like the idea of not even thinking about how anyone else eats and I like the idea of appreciating all body types and mine own. It is very similar to appreciating the wealth that flows to others and feelinge very comfortable with that! If i feel what ever negative idea of wealthy, i sure am not going to flow mine. And if i am critical of someone's striving for fitness or not appreciating slimness, i sure am not going to tap into my own!

Yeah to not comparing and yeah to appreciating!

p.143:  "You came forth in your great variety to add balance to this time and place."

Those words are so powerful to me.  We are not at all the same.  We have such diversity in every possible way and not only is that cool and interesting, but it "adds balance to this time and place."  Isn't that cool.  Our very diversity helps the world be balanced overall.  The more I think about that, the more interesting and intricate it all is.

AND, we get to experience diversity of shape and point-of-view and certainly EXPERIENCES in our own bodies within just one lifetime.  Isn't THAT cool, too!

WOW!  I love this study group.  One little line like that deserves real exploration, and even though I did underline it when I went through this book before, I didn't really give it room to breath and develop fully in my mind!  YAY! ♥ ♥

Such inspiring recent posts everyone...Really!

I have been a bit "all over the EGS" in the last few days -- although consistently in the better and better feeling realms -- but today I am making ALIGNMENT again the #1 priority.

First, this is too funny.  After all the Will Smith furor I unwittingly instigated, Source delivered this to me yesterday in the form of an email invite via a networking group:  "One of my clients is a competitive intelligence expert and will be speaking at an event at Warner Bros tomorrow. Her speech title is  "How Will Smith Used Strategy and Competitive Intelligence to Take Over the World (and You Can Too!!)"

Such proof that pushing against anything, only brings it more and more into your experience!

I am meditating a bit today on page 143's quotes about not comparing myself to others via one's body (or anything).  Truly very helpful. 

Oddly, I am nearly always blessed with perfect health with only the most minor things going off and only very rarely at that -- a sore throat every two years maybe.  But in the last two days, I've had a very stiff, achy back, seemingly provoked by nothing.  Particularly odd since, 10 days ago I did dozens and dozens of birthday backbend dropbacks without a single hitch...Hmmmmm.

It is a chance to come back into alignment though and feel that on a physical level.  It's very dramatic when it feels difficult to execute a simple move without a twinge.  I've been able -- with a little movement, a little gentle counter-stretching -- to regain that easy, physical flow I enjoy 99.99% of the time. 

As I write this, it really does seem clear to me that this physical experience is such a vivid depiction of resistance, that I can apply it to all areas of my life. 

OK -- time to do a little morning meditation and coming into greater ALIGNMENT on all levels!

::stardustEddie ... love love love the pics.  Canine dna runs through my veins.

Nancy ... Funny Susan how the discussion just happened to talk about communing with our croaked love ones as you returned. I aways think of you as such a fantastic manifester of your croaked one still being with you. You have inspired me with your stories .... aaaahhh, yes, funny how the magic works this way ::woohoo.  And I so appreciate your appreciation.  I've got tons and oodles of stories what would ignite your PPJ joy juices.  We really are having a great time, my darlyn and I.

HitC ... the quote on pg 142 (understanding our connection ....) hit me as well.  In addition, on that same page , "Once you accept the totality of your Being and you make that vibrational alignment your top priority, you are well on your way to achieving and maintaining your desired physical body."  For me, these two blended and re-emphasised the reminder that I want to begin my day with this powerful creative relief-giving intention...alignment with ME.  And once again, you have highlighted the magic of this creative game (or movie ... Evey I love that) I am playing.  ::TU

 

DonutWhisperer ... The thing that pops out at me in these first few pages is the emphasis on not comparing yourself or your experiences to others and to tend only to your own personal vibration.  :kiss: Perfectly put!!

::group We all seem excited and charged up by the reminder over the first several pages about using others as our models for comparison. In addition to physical comparisons, this reminder can be expanded to encompass using the voice of others as our gurus and guiding lights.  Personally, I feed off this reminder constantly ... and enjoy being reminded over and over again that I am the authority on me and all I need do is pay attention to ME.  I bet you all can relate to growing up being taught to follow the "rules", "put others first", "listen to your elders" , pay attention to the doctors, they know best" yada yada.  This was stamped onto my game board with meticulous brain-washing abandonment under the guise of helping me turn into a "good" adult.  Bless their little pea-pick'n hearts.  Although I learned those lessons and was very proficient at acting them out , on the "inside" I was rebelling and I KNEW it was all bunk ... KNEW IT.  (I think we all have been at this point of knowing.) Thus began my magical search for the TRUTH and my very mystical journey.  My mother, who now lives with me, is the poster elder for believing and following every word that comes out of a doctors mouth...or news caster...or politician, etc.  She is my beautiful example of living "what-is" and I appreciate, so much, the call to attention that living "what-is" is not where it's at.  I ::hearts::hearts::hearts::hearts this caution Abe brings to us on these first pages!!!

Alyssa Rose ... The stories we tell to feel better, I see for me, is something ELSE than what triggered the less-than feeling wonderful I am experiencing.   If I'm feeling anxious about money -- go to VR and tell a story about how wonderful it feels to be in the physical-- whether it's a great meal, sexual encounter, sports activity or playing of music.   If I'm a bit concerned about my health, then  tell a story about how wonderful my business has been doing, how excited I am about learning hammered dulcimer ... etc.   STELLAR...TOTALLY STELLAR.  Freak'n Awesome!!! ::musicYou have sung my song, Alyssa.::music I could have quoted your entire post::devil.   Just as you so soothingly put it, I, too, must  completely get off the topic and go into my vortex though another story-door.  As Abe tells me, they don't care how I get into my vortex. Just make getting in as my  one and only priority. From there, all else will be taken care ... the Universe has my back.  I try to go nowhere near what has me falling down the egs.  Instead, reach for the tricks and topics that I know ... and can rely upon ... to help me turn the other cheek .... this gang being one instrument. (And may I say at this time :kiss:::hugging:kiss:::hugging:kiss:::huggingto you all!!!!) Sometimes it is easy breezy.  Sometimes it takes a bit more concentration on the story I want to be telling.  Listening a little more closely to my IB.  But no matter the way or how long, the soothing and relief felt is indescribable.  I know you all have felt this, too.

Again HitC ... ::bow instead of pretending that I only feel frustration or irritation (because I "shouldn't" feel hatred) and staying stuck there because I'm trying to move from a place that's not where I really am! The VR can't be the "fixer" - I've got to go there just cuz it's nice there. Otherwise it becomes polluted ....  poyfict poyfict poyfict.  I see you have been looking over my shoulder ::devil .  This is one of my games.  Since Abe, over the past years I have been getting better and better at paying attention and recognizing when I am at this point. Then, it's all about making peace with where I am and  telling the story the way I want it to be.  But most importantly, for me, it's about being OK with me and seeing me as my IB sees me. Forgiving myself for the pretending or smiley face, or guilt ... whatever ... and then releasing the forgiveness because there was never anything to forgive.  It's all in my game.  When I am living in the moment, where all my power is, all  of this way more fun .... as well as easy.  And this leads me to paraphrasing Abe's admonition about the fact that I can take this game way too seriously and to be easy about it.  There is a quote I love ... "Life is too serious to take seriously." (sorry, but I don't remember who said it)  ::woohooand::TU  HitC.

Evey ... It is funny to have other family members comment on what i eat. By other, i mean MIL. She wants me to eat what she eats at the same time she eats it! WHaa! Lol.  Aaah yes .... me & me Mum.  I am in a conundrum on this situation ... of which I completely confess that I allow her manipulations.  But at least I recognize that I am doing this, aaaand, as we all know, I do the step 1 tango with each comment/question from her and  Source  responded bringing my desires with the very first tango, oh so long ago.  So, I'll get off topic and tell another story and pretty soon  I will be in alignment with my eating desires, and more importantly, I will have let go of the "please me Mum" edict that was embedded so completely growing up.  Actually, I have already let that go ... I just need to line up with it ::LOL::LOLThis is ME laughing at silly me.

 

Page  144 .... "Pushing Against Unwanted Attracts More Unwanted"  "As you are understanding that you are creating through your thoughts rather than through your actions, you will accomplish many more of our desires with far less effort - and in the absence of struggle, you will have much more fun.  You are offering thought in every waking moment, and so achieving a propensity to positive, good-feeling thoughts will serve you extremely well."   ::stardustFar less effort ... absence of struggle ...more fun ... more of our desires::stardust .... ::tramp::woohoo::wow

This goes back to what they told me back on page 142 about accepting the totality of my Being.  That the larger part of me is still in the non-physical ... pure positive joy and divine energy ... and nothing is beyond my magic.  And whenever I hear them tell me that  pushing against something only brings it to closer, I get this picture of me pushing against the swinging doors of a restaurant kitchen and on the other side is a big huge waiter who is much stronger than I, holding up a large tray of unwanted, pushing the swinging door in my direction, eager to present me with more from the unwanted menu. And because this waiter is bigger and stronger, he is winning.  Remember Susan....hear ME, Susan ... you gorgeous Being, you .... it's about the fun and adventures of the games.  It's about being easy about everything ... telling the story the way I want it to be ... don't push ... instead allow ... and above all play the game my way under the auspices of ME. 

I am so getting better and better at being aware of where I am through my emotions, and  as I was feeling so great the other morning, as I lay basking before rising, I was greeted  with the scent of my darlyn as he came into the bedroom after his shower every morning. ::heartsMMMM::hearts, the  fresh scent of Dial soap and Head & Shoulders shampoo mixed with Edge shaving cream  floated over me permeating the bedroom ... filling me up with the love of Source. I was feeling the pulse of paradise.  I was so in my vortex and he was giving me a sweet kiss and hug because I was aligned with his PPJ.  He does this (or something) when I am  relaxed and enjoying where I am.  Then, opps, I stepped out of my vortex ... or it moved and I didn't go with it ... and our son stops by to present me with my property tax bill by our son.  The bill came to him through a mix up in city records regarding the transfer of our house when my darlyn took off to enjoy the wonders of PPJ.  The city thinks our son now owns our lovely old home::LOL.  Soooo, I used my darlyn's visit to get into my vortex and lounge around for a very long time. Took the dogs for a walk in the park, took a drive around and looked at beautiful gardens, opened up the forum to read a bit, and  listened to Abe talk to hot seaters on the latest cds mailed out.  By this time, I was so relaxed and soothed I couldn't even feel the what-is of the what-is ... if you know what I mean.  I was  able to sooth myself about all the hoop-jumping needed to get this situation corrected.  And low and behold, what should appear, but the sweetest woman on the phone from the assessor's office with major assurances that this was no big deal, and THEN, my attorney offered to take the led and start the ball rolling ... at no charge.  So, there you have it ... or rather I have it.  Fun fun fun my way. 

I so love you :kiss:all and appreciate so much every word typed ... you are my muses

Deliciously joy-filled and thinking only thoughts that thrill me ...

I love Seth!

And thank you for sharing this quote! Funny that I have been doing this lately, because I felt like it. Great Stuff! Yes We Pay Attention Source! YooHoo!

Thanks again Susan!


Nicolette ... Yep, funny how this happens (right Nancy, lol).  In this chapter, Seth also talks about our sleep habits.  That was an eye opener, I must say.  But this is an Abe forum, not a Seth forum, so I won't go on except to say it might be worth a peek.

YUP it is and it just makes me ::nod!

Yesterday I wasn't paying attention to my cooperative components and I was rushing to the tailors house and I passed right by him watching the soccer game and he said Hi and I said Hi but well I really couldn't see him cause I was in that Step one fearing I wasn't going to find him in time::devil I am so appreciative of the Universe and the Godincidences more and more when I pay attention!!

Susan you have been on a roll. ::TU for all your insights. ::TU:kiss:

I just love the simplicity of this message!!! There is so much pure genius on these two pages!!

p. 144 : "By finding aspects of your current experience that feel good when you focus upon them, that will cause you to align with the perspective of your Inner Being, which is always focused on your Well-Being."

"As you are understanding that you are creating through your thoughts rather than through your action, you will accomplish many more of your desires with far less effort--and in the absence of struggle, you will have much more fun."

"You are offering thought in every waking moment, and so achieving a propensity to positive, good-feeling thoughts will serve you extremely well."

"You were born into a society that began warning you against unwanted things as soon as you arrived, and over time, most of you have taken on a guarded stance. ... Most of you really believe that the way to get what you do want is to defeat what you do not want, and so you give so much of your attention towards pushing way from what you do not want..."

Focusing is a magnifying glass, it's a holding onto something.. so let's put our focus only on good feeling things around us, within us, and our VR! I love what Alyssa Rose wrote about being in the VR.. This is a fantastic process and I realize that telling a new story is really going into the VR.. Telling a new story, to get in the Vortex! That is what we have been learning as Leslie so brilliantly summarized. Go in your VR to get in the Vortex! Whatever it takes for you...

p.145: "The way to get to where you want to be is to give your full attention to what you do want, not to give your attention to what you do not want."

::woohoo::woohoo My new story feels so good and I love writing about it in my Bopa! I love basking, milking and savoring how good it feels to have everything that contrast has given my the gift of clarity to know that I want! I love basking in having all aspects I desire in my life experience.

I love our playgroup and I love re-inforcing these genius teachings from infinite intelligence. And hey, the weekend is almost here and I am going for a ride on the river - I am going white water rafting with my friends! I am going to focus on how none of us are paddling upstream, but going downstream to everything we've ever asked for when we let go and get happy and enjoy the ride we came here for!!

::wow::downstream

In love and friendship, and borrowed from dear Susan, thinking only thoughts that make me happy!

Hi guys!
I had such an amazing experience this morning.  I woke up in the Vortex.  The night before had gone very well in most respects, and there were some things that I would have preferred to be different.
But I woke up feeling fantastic.

And I realized that:  THE MANIFESTATIONS ARE JUST AN INDICATOR OF MY VIBRATION.

The stuff that was 'not the way I wanted it' was just AN INDICATOR.

It didn't 'matter' except in its usefulness to tell me that I'm vibrating a 'mixed bag.'

And it's all okay! Because I can easily shift my focus to all the things that made the night before FANTASTIC.  And that's what feels so good. It's all about my MIND, my THOUGHTS, and practicing thinking myself into the Vortex.

IT'S FABULOUS. It's such a relief.  That's IT.  The manifestations are just an indicator! That's all!!!!

For some reason, this really hit me this morning.  If there's anything in my life that's not the way I want it, it's because of MY VIBRATION.

Today's page about dieting is such a perfect thing: page 145
From your place of lack, you will attract only more of that, and that is the reason MOST DIETS DO NOT WORK:  You are aware of your fat--you are aware of your body looking the way you do not want it to look--and so when it gets bad enough that you cannot stand it anymore (either from your own perspective or because others are scowling at you ::devil), then you say, "I can't bear this negative place anyomre. I'm going to go on a diet, and I'm going to get rid of all this stuff that I do NOT want." And yet, your attention is given to the stuff that you do not want, and so you hold it to you.  The way to get to where you want to be is to give your full attention to what you do want, not to give your attention to what you do not want.

(some emphasis mine, some Abe's btw!)
So, what works for me with this is, if I'm getting something I do not want, it's my GAUGE telling me that I'm focusing on what I do not want, and there is nothing other than that that is useful!

Meaning, I don't need to FIX anything about 'how things are being done' so that they are 'the way they should be'--I JUST NEED TO CLEAN UP MY VIBRATION!

I love this forum so much, because writing about this right now is HELPING ME TO REMEMBER IT.

It's all practice. I'm in practice.

I adore you, Vavi!

Focusing IS a magnifying glass! And it is so good to PRACTICE directing my focus. It's the WHOLE POINT.

And it FEELS GOOD.

Wow.

I'm going to go to sleep now. I am so happy. I've just binged on a wiFi connection until almost 3am here! yippeeee!

Also, Evey, something you wrote really spoke to me:  not wanting to Numb Out your Emotional Guidance System!
What a great way to see that!

Leslie ... Stellar ... And I realized that:  THE MANIFESTATIONS ARE JUST AN INDICATOR OF MY VIBRATION.

The stuff that was 'not the way I wanted it' was just AN INDICATOR.

It didn't 'matter' except in its usefulness to tell me that I'm vibrating a 'mixed bag.     It's no biggie.  Just a sign post.  Do I ever appreciate this reminder, Leslie.::hearts   I agree with you about writing/posting our thoughts, experiences, quotes, etc.  I, too, get so much more out of what I am writing.  In fact, I love to transcribe what Abe has to say to hot seaters for this exact reason ... plants the reminders in deeper. 


I was drawn to the same quote as you, Leslie.  It is clear and concise and up-lifting and reminds me how easy it can be when I remember where to focus. 

This quote is from the Health and the Law of Attraction Cards ... card #9.  For me, it added another depth to my focusing and I actually felt the easiness of it all.  ::cool

The face ... "I will visualize Well-Being simply for the joy of visualizing"

Flip-side ... " Take 15 minutes daily, thinking of pleasant scenarios regarding your body with the sole intent of enjoying your body and appreciating its strength and stamina and flexibility and beauty.  When you visualize for the joy of visualizing rather than with the intention of correcting some deficiency, your thoughts are more pure and, therefore, more powerful.  When you visualize to overcome something that is wrong, your thoughts are diluted with the "lackful" side of the equation.  In time, your physical condition will acquiesce to your dominant thoughts."

OOOO vavi ...
Focusing is a magnifying glass, it's a holding onto something.. so let's put our focus only on good feeling things around us, within us, and our VR!    This is sooooo scrumptious!!!!!  I am going to add this to my little book of quotes that gave me a giggly thrill. ::TU  What a perfect way to describe what it means to focus.  :kiss:


And as we both love to say as a reminder to ourselves ... thinking only thoughts that thrill me..
